Finally, some blacks are beginning to speak up about the argument that the Civil Rights struggle is similar to people who want to be recognized as a special legally protected class because of the type of sex they engage in.
It’s remarkable that many people can’t see the difference. It’s the inability to think rationally that embowers leftist arguments.
Maybe the Coalition of African American Pastors (CAAP) can turn the tide before irrational sexual exuberance destroys our nation. CAAP is working to collect one million signatures to support the argument that same-sex sexuality is not a civil right that can be compared to what blacks have gone through in America.
“The pastors of the CAAP believe Obama’s decision to champion the gay rights movement as a civil rights movement is a gross misapplication.
“‘They are trying to stand on the backs of real civil rights characters that stood up for what they believe regardless of who they were dealing with. I detest [the Obama administration for] calling it a civil rights movement. It’s not a civil rights movement; it’s a civil wrongs movement,’ CAAP President and Founder Rev. Bill Owens said.
The members of CAAP have singled out one of their own for impeachment – the current Attorney General of the United States, Eric Holder. The black pastors have pointed out that Eric Holder has repeatedly circumvented established law to promote a particular type of sexual behavior and forced his own personal views on the states. He has violated his oath of office by “attempting to impose same-sex ‘marriage’ throughout the nation.”
Consider this statement by Holder that he made at the Human Rights Campaign in New York: “In every courthouse, in every proceeding and in every place where a member of the Department of Justice stands on behalf of the United States, they will strive to ensure that same-sex marriages receive the same privileges, protections and rights as opposite-sex marriages under federal law.”
These pastors understand the implications of what a renegade government official can do. If he can circumvent the law in one area, then he can do it in other areas.
Rev. Bill Owens went on to say:
“As much as President Obama and Attorney General Holder would like it to be otherwise, we live in a democracy — with government of, by, and for the people — not a monarchy ruled by a king issuing decrees from on high. The citizens of several states who have voted overwhelmingly to preserve marriage have had their votes voided and thrown out by radical federal judges, and the Obama administration — in particular the Justice Department — has been shamefully complicit in this attack on the rights of those voters.”
Owens is unsparing in his condemnation. He’s not letting color and race get in the way. “In my lifetime,” he said, “I’ve never seen a president as bad as this president.”
Here’s the truth-telling bombshell that will not get out through the mainstream media:
“If you go back to the civil rights movement, they had consensus from both sides of the aisle; they had Republicans and they had Democrats. I think people who really don’t know what happened during that time don’t realize that it was not just the Democrats, it was the Republicans; as a matter of fact, many southern Democrats were adamantly against the civil rights bill, and I believe the ship was able to reach across the aisle because it was the right thing to do. It was right to give black citizens the right to vote, the right to live the American dream. Now, we don’t live the American dream, we live the American nightmare.”
Yes, it was mostly Democrats that opposed the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Al Gore’s father was one of them.
Now if we can only get these black religious leaders to understand that it’s liberal economic policies that have have created a slavery without physical chains.
